Green chemistry in higher education

We want to help professors and departments integrate green chemistry concepts into their curriculum and academic research. Green chemistry has value far beyond just chemistry programs — students in business, environmental science, public health, and other disciplines will also benefit from understanding green chemistry concepts.

Our goal is to:

  • Help educators replace traditional lab chemicals with safer alternatives and develop new experiments that illustrate green chemistry concepts.
  • Work with industry to show the value of recruiting job applicants and interns with green chemistry education.
  • Connect professors interested in green chemistry to industry experts, and provide case studies.
  • Provide information on conferences and other learning events for students and professors.
  • Share stories and examples of green chemistry in higher education in Washington.
